Have y'all checked out the 2015 Southern Living Idea House yet? If you haven't, you need to visit their website here. It is a true reflection of Southern architecture and design. Of course, I may be biased since it is decorated by one of my favorites, Bunny Williams.
You can visit this year's house in Charlottesville, Virginia (Bunny's hometown) from June to December for $15. Or you can just look at the photos for free as an inspiration :) My favorite quote from the article in the Southern Living magazine is this: "Your home should be the most comfortable place you can imagine". It sounds so simple yet complicated. These days, I'm all about making our first house more "home".
Who wouldn't dream of a pantry this large? It even has a potting shed, dining terrace (on top of the patio), and a giant mudroom.
